Wow, thanks Dave. Great read. My friends scored tiks and I drove up from LA. From what I can recollect Moore's article is way accurate. The post midnight stuff was ridiculous, and I already was a picky sob by then. And boy the Cow was a pit. To prove that I was a dumb ass at an early age, I remember being disappointed that MD was the last song. Like they should have finished with another rocker. Course the encores made up for it and I realized later that ending that way was quite the special thing. Standing in front of that Eyes was awesome!! Give me shivers just thinking about it. :)
